Apple News Update [9/2/11]

Well here we go my first Apple News update! Lets get started!

confirmed: naunce speech ios 5 is being tested.

A little bit of an interesting story 9to5mac has confirmed that Apple is testing NAUNCE Speech To Text in iOS 5. It isn’t available for anyone but Apple’s testers but if all goes well then it should make it’s way to us this fall hopefully with the iPhone 5.


iPhone 4 in supposed iPhone 5 case shows big changes.

The image you see above is what is an alleged iPhone 5 case and an iPhone 4 sitting in it and it does look like if thats an accurate case there are some big differences. Now as you can see it seems to be a lot thinner and I mean a lot thinner. It is also wider probably for what is rumored to be the bigger and better 4 inch screen of the upcoming iPhone and if you look to the left you see the whole for the mute switch but nothing for the buttons. Does this add to the rumor of the buttons all going capacitive? We’ll find out.

iPhone 5 investigators could have been Apple employees.

Remember the iPhone 5 story we had about someone leaving the iPhone 5 in a bar? Well it seems that the police who went looking for the prototype might not have been actually police but instead have been Apple employee’s or one of them anyways. Now Calderón the man who found the iPhone reports this to SFWeekly:

Calderón said that at about 6 p.m six people – four men and two women – wearing badges of some kind showed up at his door. “They said, ‘ Hey Sergio we’re from the San Francisco Police Department.'” He said they asked him whether he had been at the Cava 22 over the weekend (He had) and told them they traced an iPhone to his home using GPS.”

After a search of the man’s property with no successful find the intruders allegedly offered $300 for the return of the device and left a phone number when called leaded to Apple Senior investigator who is a former San Jose police officer. Anthony Colon deleted his linkedin profile which is what you see above… So I don’t know about this one but it is very interesting to read. Check out this link for more information.


iPhone 5 now has an fcc number

What you see above is the FCC number for the upcoming iPhone 5. So it seems the FCC has confirmed it and it should be coming to us soon. The number for the device is BCG-E2430A compared to the GSM iPhone 4’s “BCG-E2380A” FCC ID and CDMA iPhone 4’s “BCG-E2422A” FCC ID. Usually Apple devices don’t get a number until they are announced. This just shows that Apple is getting closer to announcing the iPhone 5.

So that is all the news that happened when I was in school it took me a little past 4 to do it but there was a lot to do and I think I did well. All new information will be in a new post.


Can we stop losing iPhones in a bar?

It seems that once again an iPhone 5 prototype has been lost by an Apple employee in a San Francisco bar a different one than an iPhone 4 but it seems like this is getting ridiculous this has happened 2 years and in a bar. The phone was said to be auctioned on Craigslist for around $200 and it is said that Apple is not working with the police to try to really get it back. So all Apple engineer phone prototype users stop bringing your iPhone to the bars.

What to remember about iPhone Prototype Images and Videos

With images and now even videos going around of what people say is the next iPhone I want to say a few things about this. Personally I don’t think any of them are real. The video that has been going around today has been fooling a lot of people. It is a knockoff. The reason I say this is because last year when Gizmodo got hold of an actual iPhone 4 apple was going nuts having it deactivated and people even going to get it. You couldn’t even get the phone to a lock screen and in the video he did so that’s why I say fake. Apple would be all over this. It is a knockoff of the OS as well if you look it looks likes jail broken iPhone and you wouldn’t be able to do that with a prototype. So look it is fake. A knockoff like those fake Apple stores in China. The design might be similar but I don’t think it is a prototype because it is still working and it looks like a jail broken iOS which again is impossible to get on an unreleased product. I mean it took forever for an iPad 2 jailbreak so there ya go. Sorry everyone.
